Totally removed some people from my friends list today, because to be honest I don't know most of the people on it. I kept names that I at least recognized and seen floating around my blog/forum posts. If I removed you you can send me another request and refresh my memory on how "we're like this *random hand gesture* dawg! No really!" Here's the list of eradicated bombers:
 
ConstantRa1n
Mario_Galaxy_Fan
Sil3n7
k3y2MyH3ar7
Johnman
ISuperGamerI
SHgamer
mjwickstrom1
Merforga
Major

Grothita
Kane
ISmoochyI
Blitzer
RodneythePom
ThePumKinMan
xruntime
pill92
Mattzz10
redgauss
nat
Sneaky_Gopher (likes pete dorr *pause for vomit*)
hockeygod31
Amphetama
Equal_Opportunity_Destroyer497 (pretty dumb name)
Billabong81
GoranP (spiffychaps isn't funny)

Yay, I wasn't removed! Sure, I wasn't on it in the first place, but let's stick to the positives.

I only added you the other day so I hope you didn't remove me already =(

EDIT: I misread, I thought that was a list of people who you'd kept. Hehe. I guess that means I'm in. Woo!

Hey cool, you didn't take me off despite the fact that it's been quite a while since I've had contact with you, I think. But I might as well use this opportunity to tell you that I love your Street Fighter IV vids. Keep on recording those. :)

I haven't heard of most of those guys. Are you sure you're not making up usernames? :P

Alas, that's the problem with this two-way friend system Giant Bomb has. There are people who want to follow me, but I don't really want to follow them. But I don't want to deny them the ability to follow me, so I accept their request. And then bam! Suddenly you've got a bunch of friends who you never really considered a friend in the first place. :(

Just don't accept their add if you don't want them in your friends list, man. It's a yes or no thing, there's no "let them see my updates but don't really put them on my friends list yet because I'm not 100% sure" option just yet. =P

At the very least I should be able to separate my friends into two categories, dudes I know and dudes I don't know and don't want showing up on feed or appearing in my friends list at all but still front like I'm friends with them so they give me HITS.

Yeah I guess so, I don't have any problem with peoples on my friends list though, If I don't like them or don't want them in feeds etc I just remove them, no real biggie.

There's a function to do this, it's just absurdly out of the way. Go to someone who's on your friends lists' blog. In the top right there should be two options: "Friend" and "ignore". clicking ignore will stop their blog updates and statuses from showing up in your friend feeds. You will still show up in theirs if I remember correctly. I think you can also do it from the Question of the day page; there's a button labeled "customize" which lets you choose which dudes on your friends list you don't want to receive updates from.

Does it actually work? The option isn't on CV and AV's redesigned QotD pages, so I'm not sure if that option was ever even supposed to be seen.

Doesn't appear to, but maybe as new friend updates come in they'll replace the users i checked off that are still showing.
